We have had numerous 2019 iPhone rumors so far and now, there is a new 9to5Mac report about upcoming models corroborating many of those previous claims as well as mentioning a couple of new ones. The report mentions details citing information shared by people claimed to have seen the devices in person.
There will be three iPhone 11 models with model numbers D42, D43, and N104 which will be succeeding currently available iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR respectively. The first two models will be sporting an OLED Retina Display panel and the relatively affordable variant will come with an LCD Retina Display. The display resolution is reported to be the same as the current generation iPhone models.
All the three models are said to feature Apple A13 processor bearing model number T8030 and internally referred to as Cebu. It will be a successor to currently used Apple A12 Bionic chipset and should bring under the hood improvements. The hardware changes are also said to include a new Taptic Engine with codename leap haptics. The exact functionality of this new engine is unknown but is expected to be related to the 3D Touch omission in upcoming iPhone models. Apple is further said to continue using Lighting ports on the new iPhones.
Lastly, the report claims that that iPhone 11 will feature a square-shaped camera bump with three cameras. There will be a wide-angle sensor in addition to the standard and telephoto sensors. This new camera sensor will also be used for a new feature called Smart Frame. It will capture more than the user-decided frame to help them with frame adjustment and automatic perspective adjustment post-capture. This extra data will be stored for a limited period of time and will get deleted automatically later. On the front panel, the selfie camera is reported to feature 120fps slow-motion video recording support.
